A Bouquet of Sunshine

My sweet husband surprised me yesterday with this gorgeous bouquet of yellow tulips.

The florist told him they had been cut from a field in Holland two days ago, and that is mind-boggling to me.

Here are some closeup shots I took early this morning of the buds ...

I think I'll go give my sweet husband another hug. I don't know what I did to deserve him, but the day I met him was truly the most blessed day of my life.

Follow-up: Here are some pictures I took of the tulips a couple of days later, as the tulips were just beginning to open ...

The tulips never completely opened and we enjoyed them for almost a week. Here is a picture of the longer lasting buds ...
